This week’s video is from Danny Cooke – a Freelance Film-maker, Director of Photography, and Editor based in South-West England.
Ray is a rogue with an eye for salvage – and the ladies. This video is an affectionate portrait of one man’s deep-sea diving career, told through his extraordinary collection of marine artifacts.
Like a modern-day pirate, 75-year-old Ray Ives has been scouring the seabed for treasure his whole life.
The former commercial diver has plundered the deep for over fifty years, bringing to the surface anything that glittered — even gold.
In a shipping container near the water, Ray tends his museum of cannon, bottles, bells, swords, portholes, and diving gear.
He even still takes to the water in a 1900s diving suit.
